The day is finally here. Episode one of the my new podcast, The Indie Pub, is finally here. It’s a casual interview show that pairs topics in and around self and indie publishing with a drink chosen by our guest.

This week, we have author K.M. Alexander discussing what it takes to adapt a mythos into our own writing. To help us along, we’re imbibing a custom cocktail called the Pallid Mask. We created this drink to pair with a reading her was doing for the King County Library System and we decided it would be the perfect drink for our cosmic horror tinged discussion.

The Indie Pub is available to stream on Anchor, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, RadioPublic, Pocket Casts, Breaker, Overcast, Castbox, and YouTube.

RADIO’s first publishing anniversary is coming up fast and with it comes some new, exciting opportunities for reading. The first I’d like to share with you is that RADIO is now available on Kindle Unlimited.

For those who subscribe to the service and have been tempted to give RADIO a go, now is a great time. For those who are unaware of Kindle Unlimited, it’s a monthly service that offers over one million selected books, audio books, magazines, and more.

For those who aren’t Kindle Unlimited subscribers and don’t plan to join, don’t worry. You can still purchase the kindle book as well as the paperback from Amazon as well as paperbacks from other outlets such as Barnes & Nobel, Book Depository, Powell’s City of Books, and more.

Thanks to those who have supported my writing during this past year and I’m excited to see what year two will bring.

Well now that TBRcon21 is sadly over, I thought it’d be good to do a quick recap of the first con I’ve ever participated in and my second con ever.

World-Building & Your Place In It

World-Building & Your Place In It was the second panel of TBRcon21 and the panel I was lucky enough to be a part of. Along with me, the panel consisted of Dale Lucas, Angela Boord, Angus Watson, Brian D. Anderson, Travis M. Riddle and was moderated by Beth Tabler of Before We Go Blog and Grimdark Magazine who knocked it out of the park. It was a great discussion and so much fun. Lots of great questions and great insights. I’m thankful to have had such a great crew to work with on my first panel and I really hope I get to participate next year.

A Few Other Panels to Check Out

TBRcon21 was 6 days of spectacular SFF panels running the gamut from fight discussions to neurodivergence, to history and so much more. That’s a lot of great content but… that’s a lot of content. I didn’t get a chance to check out all the panels but here’s a short list of a few I thought would be a fantastic place for someone who missed TBRcon21 to start.

But, What Scares YOU? with K. M. Alexander, M R Carey, Lee C Conley, Andy Davidson, Jonathan Janz & Tim Meyer

Sensory Detail in SFF with Mike Chen, Scott Drakeford, Ryan Van Loan, Marina J. Lostetter, Megan E. O’Keefe & Gareth L Powell

Grim, Dark,… Or Just Fantasy with Ben Galley, Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan, G R Matthews, Peter McLean, Adrian Selby & Holly Tinsley

The Future of SFF with Peter V. Brett, Steven Erikson, R. F. Kuang, Devin Madson & Evan Winter

SPFBO Finalists with Justin Lee Anderson, Zack Argyle, Alexander Darwin, Robert Fleming, Suzannah Rowntree, Patrick Samphire & Rachel Emma Shaw

That’s just the tip of the iceberg. Give these panels a listen and if you like what you see, dive in to more. There’s a lot to explore.
